It's way too easy for humans to dismiss animals as acting only on instinct. They're not given the credit they deserve as thinking, feeling beings.

The first thing they should be teaching each other, is how to avoid the 'human' hunters, who are hunting them.

Incredible. Wonder if we can use this technique on filibusters.

Animals have more intelligence then humans do, because animals don't kill their own kind, and humans not only kill their own kind but others too!
